Sapphire Valley Celebrates Winter With Unique Event

Sapphire Valley, NC

Lynn Kimball, your guide to Highlands, Cashiers and the Sapphire Valley

Sapphire Valley celebrates winter with a unique event. The annual Outhouse Race is a fun-filled unique experience for the entire family. After all, how many people can say they have watched and/or participated in an outhouse race? This is a time to celebrate the end of the ski season in a good old fashioned community gathering, One that draws residents and visitors alike from across the Highlands/Cashiers NC community.

What can you expect to see in an outhouse race? A spectacular race for starters. The vehicles in this race are homemade contraptions on skis being raced by those inspired to create an outhouse that will race down the slope quicker than the competition. Participants are dressed in crazy outfits and their vehicles are handmade outhouses on skis.

Are you wondering how you can enter the race? The rules are simple: register ahead of time and build an outhouse that is at least five feet tall. In addition, the outhouse must include a toilet seat, toilet paper, and be built on skis.  The more creative the better! The race takes place on February 17. There will be an afternoon parade followed by the race at 3 pm.  Learn more by clicking here.
